How can I message someone on this forum? I saw a very interesting point of view made by one of the users here. Do I need to first acquire enough reputations points to contact a user here?

  • Just please keep in mind the point of the site is decidedly not socializing or networking. – Joseph Weissman Feb 23 '15 at 15:56

    You can't. By design. – Dan Bron Feb 23 '15 at 16:05
  • why was this downvoted? it's a totally reasonable question – user6917 Mar 1 '15 at 3:08

See: How do I contact other users?

Some important points from that link:

  • Instant / private messaging is not (and won't be) available.
  • Some users are active in public chat, but Philosophy.SE is pretty dead on chat.
  • You can comment on posts (even of other users, when you earn more reputation first).
  • Some people have contact information on their profile. But take care, because not everyone likes to be contacted there without good reason.

If you have at least 20 pts reputation, you can post a message in chat starting with the @Username format, and it should appear in [Username]'s inbox. It will also be publicly visible to everyone. There is no way to send a private direct message.
